There is interplay between biological, psychological, and social issues that make us who we are. You can work as a team not only with your family, physicians, therapists, and whomever else is involved in your team approach to getting friendly with yourself – but you can also team up with yourself so to speak.
Anything going on materially with my physical body?
Medical illnesses, temperament, sleep issues, diet, exercise, air, rash….
i.e., thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Things like lack of self-control, coping skills, catastrophizing, and negative thinking.
Such as socioeconomic status, culture, poverty, technology, and religion can influence health.
Think God, friends, marriage, parenting, work, unemployment….
We can do this not only with others who are here to help us, but also in our own thoughts. We can start seeing ourselves as more than one part or another. Separate and disconnected.
